What Is Our Duty?

15 October 2013 @ 20:35

Day by day this nation sinks further and further into Despotism.

A day of reckoning is coming.

And we have a choice: do we take the lead in carrying it out or do we allow the Chaos and Misery the Left desires to gain the upper hand?

What is our Duty to the Founding Fathers and to our Posterity?

I know not how others will act, but I will not be a slave; I will either live free or die.



SIDENOTE: The above was inspired by the following comments of Jeff Goldstein and by something said by John Randolph of Roanoke on the floor of the House.


Right now, Mitch McConnell is working diligently to craft a surrender (which he’ll present as a grown-up, bi-partisan compromise) — even as Obama is looking to reward one more of his biggest constituencies with ObamaCare waivers in yet another iteration of the health care law John Roberts wrote.  With the help of Senate Republicans.

The House, in response, is set to vote tonight, and it remains to be seen how it will react to rumors of the Senate capitulation. [UPDATE:  a conservative revolt killed the vote; ARSONISTS!  Note how the WaPo frames this:  “leaving Washington without a clear path forward for avoiding a first-ever default on the nation’s debt.”  This is a straight out lie.  Default will only occur if Obama and Lew choose to default. At which point Obama must be impeached.  Or risk a civil uprising of the kind we haven’t had in this country for a long time.]

We don’t need more “compromise.”  What we need are more Cruzes and Lees.  And a much bigger set of balls.

Please do click here and read all of Jeff’s post [and copy and save, for use in arguments with LIV’s, the thirty-three points he lists]

Mr. Randolph:

I have said, on a former occasion, and if I were Philip, I would employ a man to say it every day, that the people of this country, if ever they lose their liberties, will do it by sacrificing some great principle of free government to temporary passion. There are certain great principles, which if they be not held inviolate, at all seasons, our liberty is gone. If we give them up, it is perfectly immaterial what is the character of our Sovereign; whether he be King or President, elective or hereditary — it is perfectly immaterial what is his character — we shall be slaves — it is not an elective government which will preserve us.
